I'm considering buying an '82 deisel but am concerned that the lack of power might drive me crazy in hilly country. Not worried about when I'm in the Rockies on a trip (then I have a much more relaxed attitude!)but when traveling around home. How much more power would a deisel turbo give me? I know you loose about 5mpg and it gives you an extra 5-7 mph on the open road but would it get up those hills a lot easier? Thanks for any info.
